    Turnsleft, WeeMcD, bspf and I met up at Rockport this morning.
    It was a busy place with New Years day eagle watchers filling the
    parking lot.

    The middle of the road was easier, but I wasn't able to stay up there long before dropping down into the ruts again. My favorite part of the day was when I was riding Tom's bike with the retired guys pushing me through the snow to bump start it. Tough SOBs I tell ya!

    It was a good way to ring in the New Year. Too bad the Steelhead Park worker wasn't happy about us parking in the lot. Apparently, it is only for Seattlites and not for Skagit County residents. He was friendly enough, but his logic is questionable.
